The generation of TTC values based on (Q)SAR is at this stage, where NOAEL
prediction is hardly possible, not foreseeable.
Almost 80 percent of the drugs exhibited a NOAEL
, the team found.
Fortunately, the NOAEL
example appears to have no analogue in natural hazards risk assessment.

Thus, this blood concentration is considered to represent a NOAEL

The average litter sizes for the control, TDI, NOAEL

based on a pharmacologic NOAEL
identified in a proprietary, Phase 1 study, by the innovator company versus an estimated NOAEL
based on a low clinical dose by a generic manufacturer), adjustment factors, and estimation methods (e.
Therefore, the NOAEL
for the sub-chronic 28-day study was determined to be 2000 mg/kg bodyweight/day, the highest close tested.
Chronic toxicity studies identify an additional reference point on the dose-response curve, known as the threshold or no observable adverse effect level--NOEL or NOAEL
For arsine, a NOAEL
was identified in mice exposed to 500 ppb for one hour; this was the lowest concentration tested (10).
In the present study, it was necessary to administer oral doses that were many orders of magnitude lower than the NOAEL
to observe urinary metabolite concentrations that were within the ranges reported for the U.
